This week on BCTV is a fun one! We're shootin' the shit again and this time it's all about the girls! Nikki, Riawna, Sarah and Tracey are giving us insight on how Woman can make their mark in this industry! These girls have worked so hard to be where they are and they wanna help you get there too!


Riawna Capri

As a super down-to-earth, yet honest person, Riawna’s special touch has clients coming from around the world to have her help create their “best you.” Riawna is always joking around and laughing too loud, but she takes her craft very seriously. After graduating from Oxnard High School, her parents forced her to go to college, which lasted for two years, until she made it to Marinello’s School of Beauty, in Henderson, Nevada, circa 2002. After graduating at the top of her class, she went to work at “the best salon in LA,” which at that time, in her eyes, was Fred Segal Beauty. From there, she opened Nine Zero One with co-founder, Nikki Lee, and launched IN COMMON.

Nikki Lee

Hair stylist, salon owner, entrepreneur and mom, Nikki is a jill-of-all-trades. Whether she’s layering in some extensions, crafting the perfect blonde locks or touching up a deep brunette shade, she always makes her clients feel and look their best. Nikki went to beauty school in her hometown of Reno, Nevada. After she graduated, she went to Genesis Salon. When she moved to LA, she assisted at Fred Segal Beauty in Santa Monica, California. After opening Nine Zero One Salon with co-founder, Riawna Capri, they launched IN COMMON.

Sarah Potempa

Sarah Potempa is an innovative hair stylist whose technical versatility and singular creative talent have made her in high demand worldwide. After continually explaining the complex process to get perfect waves to beauty editors, she sat down and sketched the idea for The Beachwaver®, the first- ever rotating curling iron. Enlisting her sisters and a team of engineers, they dedicated the next two years to research and development. The response was immediate and the Beachwaver® Pro quickly became a hair stylist favorite and the sought-after hairstyle by women worldwide.

Tracey Cunningham

Cunningham’s clients are among the most sought after women of stage and screen – from JLo to Drew Barrymore, Charlize Theron to Toni Collette, Jennifer Garner to Jessica Biel, just to name a few. The petite colorist treats her clients like family, who have been guided and styled by her for many years. Tracey Cunningham has been at the forefront of the competitive, hair arena for over two decades, nurturing and perfecting her talent at some of the most prestigious salons in Los Angeles, until she opened her own salon, Mèche, with co-owner Neil Weisberg, in 2012. A “less is more” approach to style, hair and how she works with each individual is her tried and tested winning way.
